Hazel will be running an exciting  mixed media art class on Thursday evenings at The Art Stables light and airy studios in Finchley.  You will use a wide variety of media where you can work in sketchbooks or on paper. Your studies can then be used to develop a more in-depth piece of work. Use your own ideas as a starting point or Hazel will bring exciting resources to inspire you. Hazel enables you to achieve high quality outcomes and work you can be proud of.

You will gain confidence as you develop formal art skills and explore painting, drawing, print and collage media. Class sizes allow for individual personalised tuition. Everyone works at a different pace and you can continue with a theme or media over several weeks to suit you.
